I thought this book was going to be interesting but it was very boring.
Helen works in a casino in London, she thinks she see's her long lost brother one night on the way home, all day she thinks of him.
She is the mother of a 6 year old girl called Sophie she also has a boyfriend called Mo.

Next day she decides to go and look for her long lost brother.
That's it really. ( )
